It’s Caesar’s favourite time of the year! It’s the Ides of March and what better way to celebrate it than to showcase some art and some fanfic!
Artwork is by MaryD (me!) and fanfic by Texbard!
- MaryD’s Art: Season 4 Episode 21 Ides of March
- Texbard Fanfic: March The 16th This story begins on March 16th, the day after the 4th season cliffhanger “The Ides of March.” I can hardly wait to see how they resolve it, and it is definitely one of my favorites. So, I’ve used my imagination a little and this is how I’d like to see it go . . .

For those on Facebook, it seems FB has figured out that I own AUSXIP – they had a generic page for AUSXIP because some people mentioned the site in their posts. Well they have given me control over the page (very nice of them). If you want to pop over and have a look, like or fave or whatever the thumbs up button is now, https://facebook.com/ausxip
I will not be using the ausxip facebook as a substitute for the AUSXIP Mothership. It’s more for images and quick snippets of info.

For those on Twitter: AUSXIP has been part of Twitter now since 2009 and since then its kind of spawned a few extra accounts to cater for Renee, Lucy, Adrienne news + I have my own twitter account. The main AUSXIP account was for pretty much everything that AUSXIP covered. What was missing was a dedicated Xena account. That has now been fixed. I did have a AUSXIP Xena 2 account which was slated for the Xena Reboot. Since that got the boot, I thought it was a good time to use it for the original and the best.

AUSXIP Site Update
I’ve been working on a section of the site for quite some time and I just couldn’t get the design or the concept to just click. Well I got inspired over the weekend and it all came together. After a few name changes and tweaks, the AUSXIP Girl Power subsite was (re)born. It brings together tiny mini subsites such as books, movies, tv and web with strong female characters. You can submit items for inclusion and we will have a look, see if they meet our guidelines that it does indeed have strong female characters (no wishy washy stuff here – think Xena, Wonder Woman, Supergirl etc etc). It will have news that is not picked up on our dedicated sites for Xena, Supergirl, Rizzoli & Isles and Spartacus. The site is only for books, movies, tv and web shows and doesn’t include actors / actresses (see our dedicated sites for the actors/writers/producers).
PLEASE NOTE: This does NOT mean we are stopping updating our current live dedicated sites such Xena and Supergirl OR any of our actor individual sites. We are just branching out and bringing together articles we think will inspire you.
